For anyone who is despondent over the state of today’s youth “From the Studios: Artwork by ABC and MMA Students” at the Chandler Gallery provides a hopeful perspective on the next generation. The outpouring of youthful creativity from students enrolled in Maud Morgan Arts classes and the Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool program is charming: when given the opportunity to make animal benches, students in 2nd-5th grade sawed, hammered and painted a llama, a platypus, a unicorn, and Dr. Seuss’s Yertle the…

CAMBRIDGE, MA (June 1, 2015) – “When people look at encaustic work, they can’t help but touch it,” says Lola Baltzell, president of MassWax, the local chapter of International Encaustic Artists. Baltzell is curating an exhibition of encaustic prints by MassWax members, juried by Betty Bothereau, owner of L’Attitude Gallery.   Baltzell describes encaustics as receptive to a wide array of mixed media approaches with “endless opportunity to explore and play and create different textures.” The sculptural quality of beeswax…

The Chandler Gallery, 20 Sacramento St.
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

Grief may be a universal human emotion, but the expression of grief is highly individual, as evidenced by “Images of Grief and Healing” at the Chandler Gallery. The exhibit, juried by therapist and artist Emily Newmann and art educator Deborah Putnoi, presents artwork inspired by personal loss. The losses are many and varied, and each piece has a story of its own. Some artworks provide clues to the events that inspired them, others encompass more ambiguity, and still others take…

Artist Michèle Fandel Bonner sees every label affixed to our clothing as “a little graphic that someone designed hoping for attention.” Bonner’s wall hangings and sculpture, made from what Bonner calls “the castoffs of daily life”—including cherry pits, champagne caps, wooden spools, and, of course, clothing labels—are on display at the Chandler Gallery in her upcoming show entitled “Piecework.” Bonner’s taliswomen dolls made from clothing labels won first prize in the Chandler Gallery’s “Small Works Salon 2015: Word + Image.”…

Painter Rhonda Smith and printmaker Sarah Hulsey are turning cartography on its head. Their upcoming show at the Chandler Gallery, “Schemata,” showcases the artists’ different approaches to mapping as metaphor. Hulsey combines theoretical linguistics with historical diagrams to create pictorial representations of words and ideas, while Smith’s abstract paintings evoke geological forces in motion. Hulsey says that printmaking, with its emphasis on “repetition, seriality, and discrete marks built up into larger forms,” allows her to “visualize the complex systems behind…

The space that separates two opposites is filled with tension, humor, and paradoxes, as evidenced by the artwork in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming “Small Works Salon 2016: Thesis/Antithesis.” Juried by artist Gerry Bergstein, the exhibition features sculpture, paintings, photographs, and prints that fuse two contradictory ideas such as realism and fantasy, movement and stillness, or sincerity and irony. “I have always thought that art deals not only with the question ‘What is it?’” says Bergstein. “But also with the question ‘What…

According to instructor Debi Milligan, the analog and digital photographs feature a range of subjects including “landscape, architecture, urban landscape, portraiture, fashion, street photography, still life.” The students’ work will be on display at the Chandler Gallery through May 13.

These works remind adults what it means to have fun. Clay animals, wooden marble runs, and a robot who serves cups for water are the creations of students at Maud Morgan Arts and Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool. The artists, ranging in age from kindergarten through 8th grade, offer perspectives that older artists can mimic and aspire to, but can no longer truly possess. The variety of mediums reveals the breadth of ideas that children have to express. One student folded the…

“We are all weavers of images above and below the surface,” says Eleanor Rubin, one of the three artists featured in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming show, “Intention and Chance: Evolving Images by Constance Jacobson, Eleanor Rubin, and Susan Schmidt.” The exhibition title refers to the printmaking process—which each artist uses—and to the ways that the artist’s objectives interact with factors beyond the artist’s control. As Schmidt says, “My work is informed by chance discovery, chancing upon and taking a chance.”…

The heart of “If You’re a Chair, I’m a Chair,” the latest show at the Chandler Gallery, is a sculpture made of two antique wooden chairs. After cutting them down on their inner sides, artist Hilary Tait Norod bound them together with many layers of different materials, such as yarn, rope and scraps of wood, “to unite them as one.” The once-separate pieces became more than just a loveseat, but a representation of the artist’s marriage. In her exhibition, which…
